A response team member will answer you and assist. The Duty Carer will also come to your home.

If you have accidentally pressed the Emergency Call Button, please inform the Response Team when they respond.
Emergency Call activators are also situated in common areas around the complex such as the toilets, kitchen, library, billiard area, Work Shed and swimming pool areas. It is important to familiarise yourself where these activators are located.
Although the external call centre can remotely monitor the condition of your emergency call device, it is suggested that you also make a test call by pressing the emergency button via the pendant on a regular basis. Just advise the call centre staff that you are conducting a test of the alarm.
RESIDENT INFORMATION SHEET:
A Confidential Client Resident Information sheet plus a Confidential Medical Report will be issued to all residents for completion before arrival in the village. The Medical report will be completed by your current GP. This medical information and the personal information you provide on the Confidential Client sheet will be entered into our secure database.
A Resident Information Sheet (RIS) is then printed for our records and for you to keep. The purpose of this form is to have a record of your details which will be readily available to staff or paramedical personnel who may attend to you in the case of an emergency.
This sheet should be kept in the butter keeper of your fridge. The responsibility to advise Care Staff of any changes to this information rests with the resident.
